Pokémon GO coaches have seen not only new shiny shadow Pokémon in the last few days, but also new lineups from Team GO Rocket. According to this, players can currently find Kindwurm, Damhirplex and Absol in a rare shiny version in the wild. Niantic has not yet officially confirmed the changes.

The Niantic development team apparently provides Pokémon GO with some innovations over Christmas. Numerous trainers around the world are currently reporting on new shiny shadow Pokémon that they have discovered in the wild. According to the information on the website pokemongohub.com these are the Pokémon Kindwurm, Damhirplex and Absol.

So far, the makers of Niantic haven't officially talked about the new shiny Pokémon in Pokémon GO. Also new are the Pokémon lineups of some Team GO Rocket trainers. Accordingly, Arlo, Cliff and Sierra are said to have made some adjustments to their team. Several coaches have recently encountered these lineups in the fight against Team GO Rocket.

  • Knogga / Onyx / Elevoltek
  • Despotar / Sumpex / Chelterrar


  • Absol

  • Tengulist / Guardevoir / Hundemon

The teams of GO Rocket Grunts, Decoy Grunts and Giovanni are said to be unchanged so far. It is not yet clear whether there will be any changes in the near future. There will also be some events in Pokémon GO in the coming days. On December 26th and 27th, for example, trainers can look forward to double stardust. There will then be double Catch XP on December 28th and 29th. The new one too Pals Adventure has already started these days.
